“Great relax spot”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Great place to have a snack or drink and watch the harbour.
Many local business people have their morning coffee and check their e-mails before heading to work. Same with the crews off Yachts and tourists. No better place to start(or finish) the day than sitting overlooking the harbour.

“Love my coffee, especially takeaway”

Best coffee in town, staff are efficient and quick, and the atmosphere is easy. Plenty of parking close by as well.

“was OK”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

should have been alot better, the food and service could have been far better than it was, the movie night was interesting and different but shouldn't be a subsitute for poor service and poor food. The staff were helpful but helpful isn't good service, forgetting half the order and waiting for 30 mins for a drink.

“Love This Place ( Means Number One Cafe)”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great coffee, butter chicken, and food in general. Three nights a week they have a first run movie for free for customers and a happy hour to get your drinks stocked up ahead of time. Right on the water. Our favourite in Port Vila

“tired”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

should have been alot better, very poor service and very average food, yes there is movie night and free wifi but it shouldn't have to make up for the lack of service. The view is awesome but take that away it is not that good.
